Officials: Fire That Threatened Several Estill County Homes Has Been Contained

Crews in Estill County say a fire that burned an estimated 50 to 60 acres and spread close to several homes has been contained.

The fire started burning Wednesday night in the area of Sweet Lick Road and continued into Thursday evening.

Firefighters went door-to-door Thursday near Plum Street in Irvine, letting residents know to keep a look out, as the fire could potentially spread. LEX 18 witnessed the fire coming dangerously close to one man's front yard.

No one was hurt.

Forestry officials are now investigating.
